MK Yishai Castigates Threats to Chief Rabbis

MK Eli Yishai referred to the threats sent to the Chief Rabbis as part of the struggle of Women of the Wall and said that "Anti-Orthodox extremism exceeds all bounds and it appears that it is only a matter of time before we see the results.

Yishai added, "This letter could only be sent, after media and Knesset encouragement of recent rampant incitement against Haredim. The police must do everything possible to find and prosecute those behind the letters."

"The warmongers must weigh their words and actions to consider their consequences, lest we see cases where explanations and apologies have no value," he added.
